Signs, Signals And Barricades For Construction

Level: Intermediate

Duration: 0 Hours 30 Minutes

Location: Online or In Person

Overview & Objectives

With vehicles, heavy machinery, other equipment, and numerous workers, unmarked construction site hazards pose significant danger. The Exceed Safety Signs, Signals and Barricades course helps keep your team safe with a review of OSHA standards for construction worksite signage and barriers.

OSHA mandates that all signs, signals, and barricades conform to Part VI of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Previously governed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the MUTCD includes best practices for using construction work zone traffic signs. Additionally, the Department of Transportation‘s (DOT’s) guidelines require all construction operations to adhere to these standards when working on federally funded projects.

NOTICE: All course participants are encouraged to review principal references, specifically, Subpart G of 29 CFR 1926.

During the online Signs, Signals and Barricades course, students will learn more about the use of construction work zone traffic signs, signals, and barricades, including:

  • Basic principles and key definitions of sign, signal, and barricade safety per OSHA
  • Accident prevention signs and tags
  • Work zone traffic signs
  • Flagger, hoist, and crane signaling requirements
  • Barricade requirements
  • Guidelines for scheduling and inspecting work zone traffic signs
  • Sign cleaning and replacement
  • Sign and warning placement

Upon completion of the course, participants will be prepared to work safely on construction sites and adhere to all OSHA requirements for sign use.

Who Is This Course For?

This intermediate-level online course is intended for individuals who are exposed to traffic-related construction hazards, as well as those who are responsible for the implementation of safe workplace practices, including:

  • Construction workers

  • Construction managers

Additionally, the Signs, Signals and Barricades Course is appropriate for construction contractors who must comply with DOT signage, signal, and barricade regulations on federally funded projects.

Features & Benefits

After completing the Signs, Signals and Barricades Course, participants will be prepared to properly use signs, signals, and barricades to ensure safety on construction worksites, including federally funded projects. Each student will learn key OSHA requirements, how to maintain and replace signs, and where signs and warnings should be placed within a site.
